    Velocity 2X offers the perfect mix of side-scrolling puzzle-platforming and top-down shooting action. With perfect controls, beautiful visuals and an amazing soundtrack.

    On the most critical point, however, Velocity 2X hasn't changed: it's still an awesome game, and it's still absolutely worth your time. Half of it may be borrowed from Futurlab's previous game, but half of it isn't, and those two halves add up to make one heck of an experience.

    Velocity 2X is aglow with ambition, ideas, and design smarts. A modern shoot-'em-up perfected.

    A polished labour of love, Velocity 2X is addictive in both its top-down and platforming sections and visually astonishing to boot. A truly triumphant must-have title. [Oct 2014, p.86]

    Velocity 2X takes everything that was great about the top down shooting action of Velocity Ultra and not only improves it, but adds a whole new layer of depth: platforming. It creates a new hybrid genre that's seamlessly blended together by its creative narrative and delicate balancing of controls for each style of game play.

    Combining the best elements of arcade-style gaming, Velocity 2X feels like a game with the soul of the '90s and the tech of the current generation. As the saying goes, Velocity 2X is easy to learn and difficult to master.

    While we hesitate to call it a game-of-the-year contender, the Vita needs more titles like Velocity 2X, a game that's equally effective when experienced in short bursts on the move, or in the kind of marathon sessions that tablet and smartphones cannot compete with.

The slick design, easy toI love top-down space shooters, platformers and puzzle games. Well, Velocity 2X is all three of those combined. The slick design, easy to learn controls and increasing level difficulty are absolutely mind-blowing and can keep you busy for weeks trying to top your scores in order to open up new levels. This game was under the radar for me but when it popped for free on Playstation Plus a few weeks ago, I downloaded it and can't stop playing it. Don't listen to the haters who give this a 1 or 2 score on here because I don't know what those people expected out of an indie game with zero advertising before it's release. I can tell you that it has far exceeded my own expectations and would recommend this game to anyone. Expand

Apesar da versão do ps4 ser muito boa também, e a do vita que brilha por causa dos controles, sendo um jogo perfeito para o portátil. Recomendo! Expand

    I am not a fun of digital games, but I bought it (also bought the first one). Very good graphics, rhythm and good control make it a superb game!

Clean colourful graphics house a robust top down shooter mixed with side scrolling platform mash-up. Different gameplay elements are added level by level until you are performing some complicated moves effortlessly. A bit of puzzle here and some speed running there add up to a fun game thats relaxing to play and quickly becomes addictive trying to better your previous scores. The pumping techno / progressive house soundtrack is awesome too and really adds to the atmosphere. Would love a sequel to this guys! Expand
